I liked the Soul Apostles more than you did. Let's not forget Weir's unrewarding guest spots with Edie Brickell (Deep Elem Blues) and Steel Pulse (Don;t Let Go). Or how about wasting Markus King entirely by plugging him into the Steel Pulse and (yawn) moe sets.

Weir struggled to stay in tune throughout both wolf brothers sets, and never quite got it from what I could hear. Songs interrupted by his stumbling and cursing... all the way through Ripple.

He's playing a solo show near me soon. Small venue, $150 big ones... after this, I'm definitely gonna have to pass

Bobby was the king of the ball this week-end. He even got a trophy at the end of the second set for most sets (32) played at Lockn since '14. God Bless 'em. I do wish his playing was in sight of his desire and love of performing.

My bad on the Soul Apostles.They should not be in that list. I really liked Cory Henry. He is the real deal.

I do not understand all the love for young Marcus King. Someone please post a thing he has done of note. I'm still looking.

Markus gives the initial impression of being another "blueshammer" type shred-player, but he hets into lovely soul- and jazz-inflected stuff as well, and explores a range of guitar tones. Plus, he can SAAAANG - which makes him a total package performer.

This show from back in March has a good mix and shows off his range well, IMO
